High school band headed to a big stage show

BECKLEY (WVVA) -- A local band is playing on a big stage, but it's going to take big bucks to get there. 

The Woodrow Wilson Flying Eagles marching band will be performing at the 2013 Chick-Fil-A Bowl, formally known as the Peach Bowl.

The game is December 31 in Atlanta.  It's the final between an Atlantic coast and Southeastern conference team.

They're asking for continued support from the community though, because each of the 50 members have to raise more than $600.

"It's very exciting for the kids.  It's a fun trip for them as well as a work trip.  You know they have to do a lot of work to get to that and prepare, and they get to meet all these other musicians and have a great time," says Bill Bailey, Woodrow Wilson band director.
